GREENPEACE ACTIVIST FREED
Former Caldicot town councillor Anthony Perrett was freed by the Russian authorities and allowed to return to Britain following an amnesty ordered by President Putin. Perrett had been arrested and charged with piracy and hooliganism after he and other Greenpeace activists had attempted to board a Russian oil exploration vessel in the Arctic Sea.
SCHOOL CONTINUES TO IMPROVE
Caldicot Comprehensive School was placed in Band 2 in the Welsh Governments assessment of secondary schools for 2012/13. This takes the school up one place from Band 3 in 2011/12 and Band 5, the lowest band, in 2010/11.
A teacher at Caldicot Comprehensive School who was suspended following allegations of his involvement into a ‘Harlem Shake’ dance with a group of Year 10 pupils returned to work following completion of an extensive investigation. (See March 2013)
